DIEing Thoughts: Impressions of Issue #1

The first issue of DIE, the Image series that looks set to define where Kieron Gillen goes next after WicDiv, lands this Wednesday. Tim + Alex have read a review copy of the first issue, so we decided to talk it over and share the highlights with y’all.

We tried to ensure the discussion is pretty much spoiler-free. But obviously, if you want to go into the first issue knowing nothing, maybe bookmark this and come back on Wednesday.

Tim + Alex Get TWATD #39: Leaving Legacies + Recognising Games

Once more, for the final time this arc, we return with two essays on the latest issue of The Wicked + The Divine. This time, Alex considers the ways that the Pantheon have sought to remain immortal, both literally and figuratively, and Tim examines how a rule system can be a cage, and how Persephone’s story has constantly sought to escape.

Spoilers all the way up to issue #39 (and implied for the 1373AD Special) after the cut.

Welcome back, True Believers! To mark the 10th anniversary of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, join us as we rewatch the entire series, one film at a time.

We’ve finally reached the end of Phase One, and all the threads of our last five installments are being drawn together as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes assemble for the first time. Does it all add up to a single story, and if so, who’s the protagonist? How neatly do these disparate characters gel? And why does Alex like MCU Hawkeye so much? Find out below the cut.

eBook: Tim + Alex Get TWATD 1923

After launching the 6,000 Years of Murder ebook last month, we had an overwhelming response, with loads of new people signing up to the Tim+Alex Patreon and pushing us past our stretch goal to produce ebooks on a monthly basis.

…And lo, our July ebook is here!

We’ve collected together all Alex’s guides to The Wicked + The Divine‘s 1920s Pantheon and their real-life counterparts, along with a brand-new essay on Persephone’s inspiration by Tim.

It’s all wrapped up in a handsome package that is one big homage to Sergio Serrano’s superlative design in the 1923 Special.

The eBook is available to all Patreon subscribers – meaning all you need to pledge to access it is $1 a month, which will let you download both our ebooks so far, and all future ones.

Download the TWATD 1923 ebook here.
